Lionpak® 5100

A high purity exfoliated graphite packing for valves and pumps.

TYPICAL APPLICATIONS
  • Pumps
  • Valves

Lionpak 5100 is a high purity 98% exfoliated graphite ribbon, plaited into a length-form packing for convenient on-site maintenance.

It is impregnated with James Walker’s proprietary high temperature, graphite-based dispersion to enhance sealability.

A cost effective alternative is also available, please download the Lionpak 5101 datasheet for full details and specification.

  • Excellent chemical resistance across an exceptionally wide temperature range
  • Replaces moulded graphite sealing rings
  • Flexible and compressible
  • Easy to install - no special tools needed
  • Reduces stockholding requirements

High speed rotary pumps handling water or slurry in pulp and paper processing. Also a general purpose valve stem packing for steam and chemical processing duties.
